Dk and dp code 2l air cooled gear box

Post by daddyjim »

Hi everyone

I was wondering if the dk code gearbox is the same as the DP code box as I was looking at a list and they both are off a 2L air cooled

Any help would be great

Many thanks

James

Yes apart from the DP was originally fitted with a limited slip differential.

I prefer what the people who made them said. And if you check the gear part numbers you will find they are the same.

Is that for UK and European models also as it specifically says US and Sweden for injection models with no mention of anywhere else? There must be some reason for the difference other than typing errors. It doesn't make sense to have two gearboxes in production concurrently with exactly the same innards and different codes if you think about it logically.

Cancel that - the limited slip diff you mentioned above! :oops:
